If Macy’s and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission are recalling 1 million Martha Stewart enamel cast iron casserole dishes, and you are an avid cook, it’s possible you have one of these. They are kind of cute.
Should you care about the recall? You decide. Here are the details:
Hazard: The enamel coating on the cast iron casseroles can crack or break during use. This can cause the enamel to crack and fly off as a projectile, posing a risk of laceration or burn hazard to the user or bystanders.

The casseroles are embossed with Martha Stewart Collection on the bottom and lid handle.
Sold at: Macy’s stores and AAFES, MCX and NEX locations nationwide, and on macys.com between June 2007 and June 2011 for between about $25 and $170.
